Andreas Skoufaris was born in 1988 in Nicosia, Cyprus. He grew up in a village just outside of Nicosia where his everyday living made him love tradition, Cypriot myths and stories. He started drawing in a young age developing his own style. In 2008, at the age of 19, he went to the U.K. to study Art at De Montfort University, Leicester. After receiving his Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, he moved to Leeds to study MA in Art & Design at Leeds Metropolitan University. In 2013 he moved back to his country, Cyprus, and started working as an Art teacher. Alongside teaching, he began preparing for his first solo exhibition.
